After Samuel L. Jackson held it down as the host of last year’s show, the BET Awards 2013 has decided to bring on actor Chris Tucker to do the honors.
Following the likes of hosts like Mo’Nique, Jamie Foxx, Kevin Hart and Queen Latifah, Tucker will be bringing back the funny to the annual award show:
I am honored to be asked to host this year’s BET Awards. I’m looking forward to being part of a really great show.
The BET Awards will be a part of the network’s three-day event, “BET Experience at L.A. Live.” The weekend will begin on June 28 with Beyonce‘s Los Angeles concert, followed by comedy showcases, live tapings of some of the network’s show and more.
As far as other the other performers, artists like Kendrick Lamar, Miguel, The Jacksons and R. Kelly will be lending their talents throughout the big weekend.
Live from Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater, the BET Awards 2013 will air on Sunday, June 30 at 8 EST/PST.
KELLY ROWLAND HEADING TO US ‘X-FACTOR’
After accepting her decision to step down as a judge for the UK version of X-Factor, it looks Simon Cowell has had a change of thought and would like to bring Kelly Rowland back on – but this time as a judge for the U.S. show.
Word on the web, the 32 year-old singer may be replacing pop singer Britney Spears or music executive L.A. Reid.
If Kelly Rowland does return for another run of X-Factor and replaces L.A. Reid, then she’ll be judging with singers Demi Levato and Britney Spears, making Simon Cowell the 4th judge.
